Staff Biography

Willie Dryburgh (Outside right, 1896-1897, 1902-04) - Willie Dryburgh joined Cowdenbeath from Dunfermline Juniors. He made a big impact with his penetrating wing play and goalscoring. He was a key man in the side which won the Central League championship and lost to St Bernard's in the East of Scotland Shield final in 1897. Sheffield Wednesday then tempted him south. He spent 2 seasons with Wednesday in the English 1st Division before moving further south to play for Millwall. Millwall had a strong XI at the time and embarked on a great run to reach the FA Cup semi final. A year later Willie returned to Sheffield Wednesday. He reverted to North End Park for season 1902/03. Dryburgh was in effervescent form back at Cowdenbeath and Spurs persuaded him to venture south again in December 1902. Willie spent the rest of season 1902/03 at White Hart Lane where his experience was utilised to good effect. He then returned for a third spell at North End Park and ended up at Lochgelly United. Willie died at the age of 74 in April 1951.
